Clio Review

Years ago, when Ken Oringer opened his snazzy leopard skin–lined hot spot in the tasteful boutique Eliot Hotel, the hordes were fighting over reservations. A 2012 face-lift doubled the size of the bar and made things considerably less formal, save for the food. Oppulent offerings like foie gras, Maine lobster, and Kobe sirloin enhanced with flavor-rich foams, emulsions, and bubbles still dominate the menu, along with a few fail-safe options, like crispy chicken and Scottish salmon. A magnet for romantics and die-hard foodies, the place continues to serve some of the city's most fanciful, well-crafted meals. Cocktail aficionados will appreciate the creative and sophisticated bar offerings.

    Creative special occasion place

    One of Boston's best and most unusually creative ultra-upscale restaurants. Splendid food and service. Reservations and dressing up are a must here.

    Spoiled evening

    Rude service, being overcharged. The manager, Chris did not care at all. The worst service in my life in Boston.

    An excellant choice

    When some stupid politician started the Freedom fries, Clio was really a target in those days because they had a French maitre'D, but hopefully, it will pick up again. The food is wonderful.
